abandoning significance

Filed under: blogging — sassinak @ 8:03 pm

i have started a few posts since i moved this blog from it’s original home. by the way, if you’re reading the archives? anything before moving day should be read here. it will have occasional pictures, one of me swinging a sledgehammer. i’m just saying.

grabs beer and water

ahhh that’s better [amsterdam nut brown]

okay so i’ve started these posts that i will finish and publish eventually, but none of them says quite what i want. i feel like something momentous should go in this space. i mean i MOVED MY BLOG! i abandoned it’s old home. it looks all forlorn and sad and stuff.

no it really does, go look. it looks like an old apartment somehow.

anyway so i feel like something big goes here but i can’t figure out what. i stalled you know, there were trinity pictures and shit. oh yeah speaking of those… i found another one courtesy of pjf’s blog.

it’s fucking freaky isn’t it? my makeup wasn’t that dark, just the flash was quite effective. i looked much paler in the mirror.

anyway so i cheated, i posted pics of trinity and did a tag and talked about moving but i never talked about anything of substance and that didn’t feel right so i started a bunch of stuff that just wasn’t nice.

i mean they’re good thoughts and i’ll elaborate on them sometime but they were all so much work and i don’t think anyone is in the mood. so instead, y’all are getting the meandering pre-climbing post and i’m chucking this whole idea of posting with significance.

see how i distract you with more trinity pictures?

yup i know, cheesy as all hell.

yes dzer you’re welcome.

i feel like there’s some kind of new direction happening with the move.

i feel like i just moved in to a new apartment and i haven’t quite got all the furniture in the right place yet. like the pictures, they’re not loading right on some browsers (should be fixed, look at moving day and see if the pics are still all weird…) and i can’t figure out why… well i think i did. wordpress (i think) doesn’t set fixed borders on the columns in the blog so it’s too big and it just covers the sidebar with it.


i can’t figure out if it’s template specific, i’ll have to make a test blog.

anyway i think i got the hang of shrinking and i’ve figured out how to add links AND how to separate comments (fucking duh, sass dots!) but i still haven’t figured out how to add a line break when none of br, /br, br/, br /, or br /br work and most of them are deleted by the editor when you save. hell i even tried to copy and paste from the html the editor generated and it deleted it.

not allowed to have more than one blank line for some reason.

but the point is that i’m moving in to a new apartment in front of the housewarming party. i feel like i should have a theme or a party or post something about how to give a blow job so i’ll get 100 [er 57] comments again and then the whole significance thing starts again.

if i don’t let that go i’ll never freaking post again.


oh crap forgot to cut my nails


i need to update my links. a lot of blogs went dark and finally got deleted when i came over here but there’s some people i need to be adding. expect some changes and let me know if i miss someone who thinks they should be linked.

note that if you’re ‘in hiding’ i’m not linking you unless you ask me to.


look nat, sass dots *g*


here is the major dilemma of my life at this moment:

do i or do i not wear clothes i won’t be embarassed by the the gym. in other words, do i assume there will be hanging after.



later kids!


incidentally i turn out not to have been able to bear the work clothes i had worn all day so i wore jeans and a shirt.  good thing, i ended up socialising.

it’s when you’re not expecting it isn’t it?


happy weekend kids.


  1. Yay First!

    Socialising when you’re not expecting it is the best kind of socialising, I think. But then I am the social butterfly so all socialising is good to me!

    I love the trinity photos. I love your rambling posts. I love your dammit-sass-wrote-a-thought-provoking-post-so-now-I-must-concentrate-and-have-my-thoughts-provoked posts. Write what makes you happy, when you want to write it. Or not. It’s your blog and it’s all about YOU.

    Happy weekend, lovely!

  2. you know, if you’d worn anything that embarrassed you that would have guaranteed post-workout socialising.

    at least that’s how things seem to work out in my life.

    we need to throw you a housewarming party!

  3. jmai: yay first indeed!

    i am the social butterfly who needs must rest on occasion. in other words i fucking love it but the getting home at the end is just as good. and you’re right, there’s a lot less pressure in the unexpected kind…

    i love the trinity photos too, i want to post them every day because they freak me out so much! and because i sort of look hot and that’s always nice.

    i love your descriptive dammit-sass-wrote-a-thought-provoking-post-so-now-I-must-concentrate-and-have-my-thoughts-provoked complaint/loving of my posts that make people think.

    darlin? i’m glad i know you.


    terry: it’s true, but instead i was just so sick of sweaty work clothes that i put on jeans and a nice shirt and got to go out and play with lovely people. what are the odds?

    mine too that’s what’s so funny.

    for my housewarming i want everyone to make wordpress avatars! *g*

  15. hey sass. this is off the subject and all but did you notice the severe blogspot outage going on today? most blogger sites only display an Internal Server Error 500. i double checked your old site it’s down too. man, i feel wise for jumping over to wordpress this week. i figured out that dumb stuff i emailed you about so disregard it… i’m kinda slow figuring stuff out at times and i sux at teh internets. anyways bug ya later.

  16. deb: i have to get to your blog, i’ve been delinquent again. it’s amazing how time gets eaten up in my life…

    i like the sounds of your new town and i’ll bet that you find gradual progress in the right direction the more yoga and pilates you do!


    kj: i did you know that? nothing too exciting but all really nice with really good friends.


    cas: i forgive you, you can just visit often instead.

    i’m good yourself?


    factory: so you’ve officially moved?

    and yes, yes i did. all the sites i went to were down, it was very frustrating because i don’t get that many days i can surf blogs anymore. isn’t it nice to feel wise? i’ve never not been able to access my blog for more than ten minutes here.

    okay email archiving..

  17. sorry. i quit. i stopped reading at number 1. my patients hug me. (not the men and i’m not a dyke. some of the men do a one handed hug shake the hand sort of kiss each check thing)

    mind you some men………are idiots. they push and push until you must say something unequivocal and then they get insulted. men can be stupid. not all men. just the ones that think dating their dentist is alright. there are rules.

    thanks for the weight class today. however, i was in so much pain that no matter what i did it didn’t feel good at all at all. :*(

    p.s. i don’t like the new format. i need visual outlines and definitions for things and this wordpress is naked.

  18. gabi i hug a lot of my clients. these rules apply specifically to friends where one friend falls for the other and they both try to salvage the friendship… those kinds of friends can’t hug for a long time after such incidents.

    some men really are idiots, some really aren’t. it’s the idiots rules like these are written for.

    are dating rules the same for dentists as doctors?

    gabi let’s make a deal, pilates for a new upper mouth dental thingy for sleeping. i’m tired of the jawaches and you’re tired of the backaches and a bruxism appliance buys at least a few private classes…

    ahh check out other wordpress blogs and see if you like the templates…
